Cooperstown hotel description

The latest Hotel was famous for the Sulfur Baths that Richfield Springs became famous for in the 1800's into the mid 1900's. The area is now the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame and a mecca for baseballs fans from all over the world.
The Cooperstown BaseBall Hotel , known in the glory days of Richfield Springs as the Terrace Hotel and Sulfur Bath Hotel, is the last standing hotel and bath house complex that marked the end of the most important era in the village's history . At the height of the Springs popularity, the village had numerous hotels and bath houses and was a popular summer destination. The Era of the Springs served such guests as inventor Thomas Edison, Governor and President Franklin Roosevelt, Cyrus McCormick of McCormick Harvester, Gen. George McCellan, writer Sarah Orne Jewitt, and Oscar Wilde and many others in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

Now it will cater to baseball families providing lodging for large groups. We are conveniently located only three miles from Cooperstown Diamond Dreams, fifteen miles from Dreams Park and twenty five miles from Cooperstown All Star Village. This complex of buildings has a beautiful setting with expansive lawns and a 200 foot front porch on the main building for guests to mingle or entertain. A large fully equipped 30x40 foot kitchen that once served the spa guests is now available for teams to prepare their own meals. The large dining room is so massive many people could enjoy home cooked meals or a catered party.

The 25 bedrooms each have a private bath in combinations of one queen bed, a queen bed & twin bed, two or three queen beds. Teams that book early get first choice on room layout for a number of beds.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We have run our own business since 1971 and have been fortunate to currently run a lodging and restaurant based business in Richfield Springs N.Y. Christine is a second year law student at Syracuse University. She also just recently won the Syracuse Law School Haiku poetry contest!

                  Why the Owner Chose Cooperstown:
                  This Cooperstown BaseBall Hotel is a Spectacular Architectural Structure of an era gone by when thousands of people came here for sulfur baths and was built specifically as a Jewish Hotel. The Jewish Synagogue was next door and the Hotel was there to house the guests of the sulfur spa. Today it is used to house the many baseball or softball families that come for the many baseball parks in the area of Cooperstown.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
                  While this property is not on the lake, it enjoys all of the amenities of staying on the lake as well as being at the hub of activity, only a block from downtown within walking distance of antique stores,pharmacy,ice cream parlors,library,tennis court,and large park with a farmers market.The cooking facility is thirty by forty forty feet and has all the equipment needed to prepare meals on a large scale just as it did for the guests of the hotel during the early 1900's.This feature alone will save hundreds of dollars in eating out. The camaraderie of living together in such an open dining and lobby area of the 1895 era will leave a lasting memory of days gone by when people came strictly for the sulfur baths. The Lake House Hotel can be rented from 25-30 guests up to 70 guests.
